What Is A Pre-Paid Funeral?

A pre-paid funeral is a funeral purchased in advance and involves a formal contract between you and a funeral director. The contract specifies exactly what you want for your future funeral service and the goods and services that you want the funeral director to provide.

You pay for your funeral in advance and your investment is capital guaranteed which protects it from any issues of solvency. This also guarantees your initial and subsequent net contributions, plus declared bonuses, upon your death..
